I saw the news article on Yahoo News.. one of my main sources of news on the internet.. reading the article, I was ready to hop on the next flight back home so I could start clearing supermarket shelves of canned food and bottled water.. today, I scoured the net looking for follow up articles to either confirm or deny that climate change would be such a threat to man-kind.. I still didnt find it.. but what I did find was the website of a self-procalimed left-wing liberal.. I read his take on the Pentagon document but he didnt seem that left-wing to me :???:.. anyhow, below his blog, he had a comments section.. I read all of them.. the comments could be categorized like this:
-“Hell yeah, its about time someone brought up the issue of climate change”
-“That dumbass GW Bush..”
-“This document confirms the conspiracy theory.. governments are poisoning their people”
-“What the hell is wrong with you freaks?”
It was the last comment that caught my attention.. the “what the hell is wrong with you freaks”.. the person said that the newspapers and news agencies were blowing the report out of proportion and suggested that people go read the whole document themselves.. so I did.. here’s the intro to the report:
We have interviewed leading climate change scientists, conducted additional research, and reviewed several iterations of the scenario with these experts. The scientists support this project, but caution that the scenario depicted is extreme in two fundamental ways. First, they suggest the occurrences we outline would most likely happen in a few regions, rather than on globally. Second, they say the magnitude of the event may be considerably smaller.
We have created a climate change scenario that although not the most likely, is plausible, and would challenge United States national security in ways that should be considered immediately.
So, its kind of like a worst case scenario report.. like “what if..” and “if so, we need to..”.. geez, and to think I was about to raid my neighbors for their canned goods and potable water.. it does really make you think though.. I mean, what if Mulder was right all along? What if the government was working with aliens so that the aliens could harvest humans? Maybe the deal went bad when the aliens realized that the government couldn’t do anything about the aliens.. the “so what if I do? waddaya gonna do about it?” attitude. It would then be conceivable that the government introduce disease, illness, famine, and drought to the people so that the aliens would no longer want to harvest humans..
But seriously, I mean.. climate change is really something we all need to think about.. I’ll be sure to give it a lot of thought as I cruise down the highway in my twin T67 turbo Supra with no catalytic convertors running 6 1000cc injectors and getting 6 miles to the gallon.. just kidding :lol:.. I only need one T67 turbo and I’d probably only need like 880cc injectors :smile:…
